He has rights you think?
And should cross-examine the victims himself you think?
Yes, as a U.S. citizen he still has rights. Write your congress person have them get rid of the 6th Amendment if you don't like it. The law is the law it cannot be changed for your personal satisfaction.

Please move to Egypt (or Syria at the moment), once the MB is firmly in place, Sharia law of the OT dark ages is reinstilled and the semi democracy that had previously existed has been utterly destroyed.
America will NOT miss you. Promise.
Typical Rethug. You've got nothing to offer in the way of factual discussion so just spew nonsense because you like to hear yourself talk.

We wouldn't be in this mess if we hadn't blindly supported Israel and their terrorist tactics which angered the entire Arab world. Egypt is a soverign nation. If they want to support the Muslim Brotherhood so be it. If Israel doesn't like it. So be it. Let them work it out and leave the United States out of it.

Food stamps re primarily to make sure aid is used to feed the children.

So, you want parents to feel so embarrassed that they don't use food stamps & their children suffer?

I hateto you Homer but when he signed his name to become a part of the United States Armed Services he agreed to be tried under the Uniformed Code of Military Justice. They are going to tie him to a pole and execute him by firing squad.

Galt there’s always an exception to the Rules and this is one of those Situations, if she was 12 this might not have been an issue!! I appreciate you discussion, but (Galt) if it takes a mother using the Media to draw attention to saving Her Daughter Life more Power to Her!!

People who aren't interrogated gestapo-style or have their names and addresses posted because of their political beliefs and who aren't treated like they're on the government's "enemy's list" are, in fact, "useful idiots".
Otherwise, who in their right mind in a country that was once proudly hailed as the land of the free not see this is illegal, un-American and a dangerous abuse of power which will only get worse if the complacency we see on here spreads?
I'm seriously very concerned. Our freedoms that once defined us is on the chopping block.
And some on here are the few of many others holding the cleaver.

Instead, he chose to tell Congress to go f*ck itself.
It's a stupid question. He gave a more than adequate response. You know the old saying 'ask a silly question...

It's an unbelievable injutice to the victims who will be cross-examined by the same terrorist who tried to kill them.
It's too hard to even get your head around.
It's like pouring salt on their wounds after being completely ignored by this president and his failed promise of denying them benefits.
It's criminally insane.

Processing paper coupons would be an enormous cost for business.
I doubt it. Food stamps were handled same as cash (brown=$1, blue=$5 and green=$10). They were totaled, bundled and deposited just like cash.

The big winner is companies like "Global Merchant Services". It's big business.

Are democrats TRYING to drive could be supporters away on purpose?
It would appear so lately.

Homer will defer to the military judge who has allowed this ahole to represent himself. I'm guessing he knows military law better than old Flack.

Oh, it goes back much further than that and is much worse than you even imagine apparently.
The Community Reinvestment Act of 1977 was strengthened during the Clinton administration as a federal law that MANDATED lenders to offer credit for the entire market and discouraged restricting credit services - known as redlining. In other words, it encouraged banks to make loans to riskier customers.
President Clinton put the Community Redevelopment Act on steroids.
Bush wanted to offer "qualified buyers" with help with a down payment. Pennies compared to the overbloated stickers on homes during the housing balloon.
Which is largely to blame because the balloon eventually popped.
Unqualified buyers in overpriced homes were screwed.
You did answer my question.

Why is it you blame Democrats in Congress for Bush's recession but don;t blame the Republican Congress for actions under Clinton.

And really. We passed a law in 1977 & it took 40 years to explode?

The CRA had little to do with the housing bubble & collapse.

The REAL problem is that she is NOT the little daughter of any Liberal in here. That is the REAL tragedy.
The ruling concerning adult lungs in children was set in 2004. My God you people are stupid.

Amendment VI
In all criminal prosecutions, the accused shall enjoy the right to a speedy and public trial, by an impartial jury of the state and district wherein the crime shall have been committed, which district shall have been previously ascertained by law, and to be informed of the nature and cause of the accusation; to be confronted with the witnesses against him; to have compulsory process for obtaining witnesses in his favor, and to have the assistance of counsel for his defense.
That said, military courts operate under different rules than civilian courts. The accused has no right to use the court as a propaganda platform. Judges in both civilian and military courts have fairly wide latitude to exclude irrelevant testimony. They also have the right to terminate self-representation if necessary to assure a fair trial. This court has been far too tolerant of the unreasonable demands of the terrorist.
For all of George Zimmerman fans, it's a good thing that he wasn't tried in a military court.
